‘Real Housewives ATL’ NeNe Leakes’ book signings set

Want to catch a cast member from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in person but keep missing Kim Zolciak’s clueless observations about table-side guacamole-making at the Atlantic Station Rosa’s Mexicano?

Well, fan fave NeNe Leakes herself will be at two area book stores next week touting her brand-new book “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way”

On Aug. 12, she’ll be at the Barnes & Noble in Buckhead starting at 7 p.m. On Aug. 13, she’ll sign and greet admirers at the Borders in Lithonia at 7 p.m.

So what can fans expect in “Mistake?”

Here’s the official word from publisher Touchstone: “Reality TV drama queen shares her wild journey from a scandalous past to the top of reality television stardom in an outrageous and captivating memoir.  Charting her journey from family black sheep, single mother, to realizing her dreams and making good, NeNe shares intimate accounts of her past and the hard lessons learned in discovering her path to true love and self-acceptance.  Written in her bold, tell-it-like-it-is voice, she also addresses the rumors about her past and dishes on her fellow members of the cast.  She is a self-made woman who has not forgotten where she came from and knows exactly where she wants to go.”

Oh, and check back at Buzz Central early next week. We’ve booked an interview with Leakes to discuss her book and the second season of the hit Bravo series.

NE-NE has been my favorite since Season 1 she keeps it real; when i saw the 1st episode i said “she’ll be the one you love to hate because she’s the most real housewife” GOOD LUCK TO YOU NE-NE :)

I’ll pass! NeNe isn’t real and really thinks she is more important than what she is. I almost liked her last season, but this season she’s so transparent. And to know that she’s rude to fans in public! Girl, when this show ends, you’ll be a has been. I applaud you on cashing in while you’re hot though! But stop being so rude! Too many people have encountered you and said that you were plain rude.

Just think about all the legitimate authors out there that can’t get published and this piece of trash gets a book deal. Disgusting. This country is going straight to hell.

Nu uh

Interesting comments… anyways.

I’m not sure what I have a taste for.

I am starting to get kinda hungry.

I was thinking about grabbing a salad at Fresh 2 Go…

But I kinda want a chicken ranch sub from subway. I know if I have a heavy lunch then I know I’ll want a lite dinner.

PERHAPS, I’ll grab a pizza for dinner and just have a salad for lunch. Yeah, I think that’s what I’m going to do.

Okay, now, so do i want pizza hut or papa johns…hmm, that’s going to be a tough choice.

I know that IF I GET A PIZZA then i’ll want to have some ice cream and perhaps a brownie….OOOOh, that sounds so good, especially right now.

Okay, Salad for lunch.

Pizza for dinner with ice cream and a brownie.

But, what about something to drink?

Okay. Got it.

I’ll have ice water for lunch and a Lemonade for dinner. Hmm, lite lemonade or regular???

I guess I’ll go for the regular.

Okay, I’m off to get my salad.

To the point

Who would want to buy that classless piece of trailer trash’s book?

Why does everyone keep saying that nene is the “realist”? I’m not saying i dont like her but why cant a woman who is educated, sophisticated, classy, kind, respectful, well mannered be considered real? It’s not like there are any women on this show are that way….except for denise. So considering all that, why was denise not considered the “realist” last season. Everyone last season still said nene was the “realist” but why not denise?

Nene you two are to ghetto for the show and Sharee. Everyone Sheree in contact with she blows up at them and she did say all those things about Nene to Kim. I feel sorry for Kim, but she stood her grounf last night against BIG MOUTH SHEREE. Nene if you want to be Kim friend then put everything in the past, because you talked about about Kim to and you always said that whatever you say about someone you can say it to their face….wrong…….you did tell Kim all what you said Lisa did… are not real at all……you are FAKE. Your husband is broke and Bravo TV is renting the house you all are in on the show. HAHAHAHA

Great ATL Guy
